They need donations of new and gently used furniture and household items plus volunteers to help organize furniture and work with clients after training.

Connecting people with ways to serve is an important part of our mission here at CTUMC. Giving money or items to a mission is the first step. As we grow as a follower of Christ, we move up a ladder of missions to take steps toward short term mission service leading to a more committed connection with the needs of our community and world.
